Free Family Crafting with Kelle
Join visual artist and crafter Kelle with a colorful art project for kids! This month’s project: DIY Foam Stamps.
In this workshop, crafters of all ages adhere pre-cut foam to everyday objects like wine corks and bottle caps to make their own ink stamp. Once your unique stamp is made, explore differentstamping techniques on greeting cards and bookmarks. Learners will be introduced to layering stamps as well as incorporating hand drawn elements into their artwork.
Free event with free 90-minute parking validation upon request.
This programming was created in part through the City of Los Angeles Arts Development Fee Program, Department of Cultural Affairs.
